A Look Into My Minimalist Closet

I have two competing personalities when it comes to clothes.
One side of me doesn’t care a bit about fashion, and would wear the exact same thing every day if it would stay clean.
The other side of my split clothing personality loves to dress up and look nice, and hates looking like a fashion frump. Over the years, I have battled to find a happy medium between the two, and I am still working on that aspect.
However, the one thing both of my split clothing personalities agree on, is LESS IS MORE!
This is my huge walk in closet that houses every piece of clothing I own. (With the exception of a few maternity clothes up in the attic.)
All of my husband’s clothes are on the left, and mine are on the right. I keep them in three different sections. The first section is my tops- long and short sleeve. I used to always have to pack up my off season clothes, but now I have PLENTY of room for everything to be out at one time.
Pants and skirts are next. I am lacking in the pants department right now. I swear I had two more pair that have gotten misplaced somewhere in the unpacking process. So, this is minus a couple of pairs of jeans!
Lastly, I have all my dresses, and my two coats. Dresses are definitely my weakness when it comes to clothes. I LOVE to wear them, even around the house. Sadly, they have been sitting pretty dormant since last summer because wearing dresses doesn’t go well with nursing. 🙁
I have my swim suit, tank tops, shorts, sweaters, yoga pants, and underclothes folded up on the shelf above.
I have a pair of rarely used tennis shoes, my winter boots, slippers, and my “special occasion” black high heels in the bottom of my closet, and my summer sandals, and mud boots are kept downstairs in the mud room area.
I am totally basking in the fact that I FINALLY have a nice big closet, and that I don’t even need to have a dresser in our bedroom anymore!
I am still trying to find the balance between dressing decently around the house without ruining my nicer clothes with baby spit up, pee, or chicken poop and mud. Aprons are definitely a must for me!
